Christenings and Naming Ceremonies
Christening is a ritual that predates even the earliest Christian traditions. The rite and the interpretation of its meaning have undergone changes over time, and today, christening is practiced in many different ways. The purpose of Christening in a non-traditional way is to recognize the spiritual identity and purpose of a soul and welcome that soul into the world. God-parents can be an integral part of this ceremony or not as desired by the parents.
We perform Celebration of Life services. When a loved one passes from this earthly plane, this loved one is celebrated on their journey to the next dimension. Our desire is to effect a healing with those in attendance at the end of life service and to recall the life and times of the deceased from a place of joy and celebration for the good he or she brought to this plane. Each service is uniquely created and adapted after an in-depth interview with family members to personalize the service for everyone.
Our desire is to create a uniquely memorable experience for the bride and groom, groom and groom, or bride and bride. We celebrate all those who wish to publicly express their love for one another by joining their two lives in matrimony. Our intention is to make this noteworthy day even more meaningful by collaboration with both parties, keeping in mind the sacred in the celebration and creating lasting memories.
A private home blessing ceremony acknowledges and honors your home as a sacred space, a sanctuary of love, and peace and joy. Settling into a new home, whether a house or apartment, may require a release of the energy of previous owners or occupants, and this is done through a somewhat Native American custom of smudging with burning sage. This ceremony can also be adapted according to the desires of the new residents.
